Sunglasses - Karen Walker// Silver Jewellery - Janpath Market// Shoes - Thailand
There are days when you don't want to look like a diva. Days that are not about that perfect hair, perfect makeup and shiny clothes. These are those laid back, scary days when you've not slept or are hungover or just tired of doing nothing and would probably pick the first thing that you see in your closet. That freshly washed and ironed shirt which you most likely wore two days ago but you're just too lazy to stretch your hands that little extra to find something new.
Usually these are the days when my hair are on their worst behaviour and I normally rely on my Anokhi kurtas or my 'match me with anything' shirts. Oh how these shirts are the best thing ever. They are your silent best friends, always having your back. On one such day, I found myself being saved by my all time favourite light blue, cotton New Look shirt. I have worn it over jeans, trousers, shorts, skirts, it goes with literally everything! I teamed it up with a hippie tie and dye Billabong skirt. Even though I tend to avoid wearing horizontal lines as they have a habit of making things look larger than they should but this one was quite subtle. Also because the darker colour of the skirt toned down the effect.
I've always had a thing for antique jewellery especially those banjaran chunky ones. You get some amazing pieces at the Janpath market in New Delhi for quite good deals. I love this old coins necklace and double loop ring that I bought from there recently. It actually jazzes up a boring outfit quite effortlessly. Whats great about these pieces is they are rustic and stunning.
To break the blues, I wore my new Jord watch. It's made out of wood and the beautiful wine colour just adds a little hint of warmth. These watches value sustainability, efficiency and an experimental lifestyle. These watches are stunning and the wooden structure makes them ever more appealing. You can order your Jord watch from - http://www.woodwatches.com/#redvelvetcloset and if you would like to order the same wine one, follow this link- http://www.woodwatches.com/series/cora#45/#redvelvetcloset
Put on your big sunnies to cover your sleep deprived eyes and wear comfy shoes and I would recommend coffee. Lots of coffee for these unmerciful days.
